Wiener Takes All: A Dogumentary

Read this movie review in Variety about dachshund racing. Evidently weiner races are surging in popularity and this film takes a look at the phenomenon. However, as a dachshund mom I take issue with the sport. Long backs and short legs invite all sorts of spinal injuries - note the previous post about the paraplegic pup.

Oh, they are loads of fun to watch, and contrary to what you might think, dachshunds are fast. Ah, the beauty of a weiner dog in flight; quite a sight to behold. But don't race them - please.

The movie isn't playing in Huntsville, but please let me know if you see it!

"a wiener dog in flight" brought to my mind the ornament with the dog on skis...

I'll be pulling that ornament out of the box in a few short weeks...
